This is the September 8, 2015 hearing on "Beyond Bin Laden's Caves and Couriers to a New Generation of Terrorists: Confronting the Challenges in a Post 9/11 World," held before the House of Representatives Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of Joe Daniels: "On the 10th anniversary, just 4 years ago this week, we opened the memorial, and since then we have welcomed over 21 million visitors from every State in the country and 175 countries around the world, making this one of the most visited historical sites in our country. Just last year, we opened this museum with a dedication ceremony here in this Foundation Hall and have seen a tremendous outpouring of positive feedback. In just over a year, we have welcomed more than 31⁄2 million visitors to the museum. In addition to the general public, we have had visitors from across the political, cultural, and military spectrum. But for every visit from Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge and various heads of state, the most meaningful visits have been from the nearly 75,000 active military and veterans, including three recent Medal of Honor winners; the former U.S. Army Chief of Staff Ray Odierno, along with several four-stars from his team; and, last September, we had the entire corps of West Point cadets on the 9/11 Memorial." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: William J. Bratton, Daniel A. Nigro, Lee A. Ielpi, and Gregory A. Thomas.
